I sometimes write about "the business of writing" with its own tag that covers writing, editing, publishing, formatting, promotion: all sorts of tasks that a writer might be involved with. I also share tips in writing groups; a few people told me the tip I'd shared today was useful to them so I thought I'd include it here too.

The image is a checklist I made for when the blurb or cover of one of my books changes, or if my author details (bio) get updated. I then work my way down the appropriate column. It's a way of controlling the mass of information related to that task and a useful guide for keeping track of where I need to update the changes. I just use simple Word tables so if you're an author feel free to make your own based on that idea (with your own sites and distributors).

Note that I also have more formal services for other writers.
